Surfing Spot: China Walls at Portlock, Oahu

I lived only a three-minute drive from this dramatic surfing spot, but I'd never ever surfed China Walls mainly because the waves were intimidating as hell, and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out from where I should paddle out (and I was always too embarrassed to ask.)  The surfers always seemed to magically appear amongst the giant swells and at any rate, I was nowhere near their league for China Walls, with all its six-plus-footers and board-splitting glory, was created for hardcore riders and not moony-eyed amateurs like me.   I was totally at peace with that, for it was an amazing place to witness some of the best surfing techniques and of course, those glorious Hawaiian sunsets.
